Alyson Beaton is the creator of lille huset and has always found inspiration in the world around her. Lille Huset (means little house in Norwegian) was born out of her Norwegian heritage in her Norwegian neighborhood in Chicago. She made her first lille huset dollhouse for her daughter for her 6th birthday. She thought to herself, why not make all styles of houses for kids to decorate and love? It was the mixture of all things good that created this new kind of little house for a new kind of kid.

Alyson Beaton was trained as an architect and went on to complete her MFA in Visual communications from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has a passion for giving kids true hands on creative play! Say goodbye to screen time and HELLO to lille huset!
